This is in response to the letter “Take me to your leader, eh” (Sierra Sun, Nov. 19). The letter writer says, “Tony Blair is the leader of England … the one helping you kill people…” I just want to tell him that if he doesn’t like our country or how we do things here, he can go home to Calgary.Being a military wife, I take offense to his attack. Not everyone agrees with what our president has done in the past and a lot of people have mixed feelings about what he is going to do next. But what I know is this: No matter who is president, we still need to stand together as an independent, free, and proud nation. My husband may or may not agree with what his commander in chief decides, but it is this nation who he serves; not one specific person. Don’t come to our home and publicly bad mouth our way of doing things, whether you believe they are right or wrong. It’s just plain rude.Susan Grant,NAS Fallon, NV(formerly of Truckee)Chill outChill out! So what if the dark shadowy forces stole another election and the presidency again? How are you going to prove it? These are heavyweights.Move on! Thanksgiving is coming and America has so much to be thankful for.Let the past be just that – it only exists in your mind, anyway. There are so many suspect areas in this administration that you won’t have an idle moment for the next four years.Ron LoweNevada CityIn deep gratitudeThe true community spirit of Truckee and our all-volunteer staff welcomed local, national and international athletes from seven countries to the 19th annual Tahoe Donner International Wheelchair Tennis Sectionals, NEC Championship Series 3.Great appreciation goes to our sponsors.
